Russia have proved consistent performers since their team was formed, reaching the 1999 and 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup quarter-finals and usually qualifying for UEFA Women's EURO.

The one they missed was 2005 when they lost to Finland in the play-offs but that year they won the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship and members of that generation, including Elvira Todua, Elena Morozova and Elena Terekhova, have now become the core of the senior squad. They returned to the finals in 2009, beating Scotland on away goals but exiting in the group stage, and again needed a play-off this time, seeing off surprise package Austria. That two-legged tie were the first games in charge for Sergei Lavrentyev after he replaced Farid Benstiti following his return to France in the summer.
